Outdoor Ride-On Toys for the Whole Family

If you have been trapped inside your house for the past few months, chances are high that you are dreaming of the day you and your kids can finally go outside to play. The good news is that Spring is just around the corner; soon, the snow will melt and everyone can go outdoors and enjoy the sun and the fresh air.

The arrival of Spring can have a bit of a downside. When you spend winter indoors, you tend to get in plenty of family time. It is easy to do everything together and really bond with your children. Once the weather warms up, most outdoor activities seem to take place while the adults sit on the sidelines. So, how can you make the most of playing outside without losing out on family bonding?

Consider purchasing ride-on toys that are designed to work for the entire family. These toys are incredibly fun and really get everyone into a playful spirit. Not to mention that they keep you active and healthy. So, what are some ride-on toys to consider?

Some of our favorites are Mobo Cruisers. This line of innovative ride-on toys has options for kids of all ages—and their parents, too! Set on three wheels, with a recumbent seat, these ergonomically designed cruisers provide a super-comfortable ride. Because they are low to the ground and do not require any balancing, these are even safe for most senior citizens, so Grandma and Grandpa can get in on the action. Mobo Cruisers do come with safety flags, however, because of the low-profile of these cruisers, they should not be used where cars are driving by.

Want to go on a real adventure? Then we recommend BERG Toys Pedal Go Karts. The steel construction will stand up to the roughest of riders. Around the neighborhood, in the woods, through the mud, no matter where you want to ride, there is a BERG kart available to handle any terrain. Each pedal go-kart that BERG Toys makes can even be driven backwards. Boys and girls as young as three can explore the world on these unique ride-on toys. Some models accommodate adults up to 285 pounds and 6’ tall. Equipped with adjustable seats and steering wheels, these karts will grow as your children do, really giving you your money’s worth.


If you are interested in something more along the lines of a bike—perhaps to start working on the skills needed to ride a standard bicycle—take some time to look into Glide Bikes Balance Bikes. These bikes have no pedals, allowing children to develop the correct balancing skills needed to ride a bicycle. There is a model for all children, even those with special needs. Children as young as 18 months can glide on these bikes and begin to learn the necessary balancing skills for riding a standard bicycle with their Ezee Glider. The Mini Glider balance bike is designed for kids 2-5 years old, and the Go Glider is for kids 5-10 years old and for those who have special needs. Even adults who have never ridden a bicycle before can easily learn with the Glide Bikes Super Glider which is for anyone over the age of 10.

With all three brands there are designs that work for young children all the way up to adults.
